    Guys I will be moving up to OR in a few weeks (Portland area). I was wondering what my choices are for full auto friendly ranges. Thanks!

    Albany Rifle and Pistol Club about an hour or so south of the Portland area. To my knowledge that's your only option.

    Beavercreek Armory just opened a new range and they rent full autos- so you might try there. I don't think it's very cheap to shoot there though, but I haven't been.

    good luck!


    PS They are in Hillsboro

    Kitsap Rifle & Revolver club. They had full auto demos from a vendor selling ammo.
    Man, It was so good going full auto I had to change clothes.
    Only 3 hours from Portland. If you can own it you can shoot it. Just let me know so i can bring a few mags of ammo.

    Civilian, non-dealer ownership of MGs is not legal in Washington state. If df662 wants a Portland area range, he'll need to stay in Oregon.

    not according to RCW 9.41.190
    Basically if you owned it before 94 you should be good to go. However check with the County Sheriff fiirst.
    If fact i will check with my attorney tomorrow to be sure.

    You are right about portland being in Oregon.

    Although I don't own any MGs acquired prior to July 1, 1994, I'd be interested if that would cover a MG from out of state. I haven't read the rest of the RCW, but that part doesn't make a distinction.
    And that law needs to be changed.

    Yes the law needs to be changed. and out of state concerns is why i said call the sheriff. I love machine guns. Often i play you tube vids of Mg firing to go to sleep.

    RCW 9.41.190 contains the usual exemptions for dealers police and military. RCW 9.41.190: Unlawful firearms
    The grandfather clause says;
    So the way I read it as long as you had it registered in your name before July 1, 1994, you can bring it into the state legally.

    Well, I'm about 17 years too late to that party. My first MG is pending.
